Hazard Mitigation
Natural hazard mitigation is a sustained attempt to lessen the impact that a natural hazard poses to life, property, infrastructure and other valuable resources. A plan to mitigate natural hazards includes a variety of preventive actions in the form of policies and capital improvement projects targeted at minimizing the impact of future severe weather occurrences. The purpose of this plan is to identify both known and potential risks and to develop a mitigation action plan. The benefits to the City of Woburn from the implementation of an effective Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan could include:
  • Reduction in public and private property damage.
  • Increased access to funding sources for hazard mitigation projects.  
  • Increased access to funding sources for post disaster recovery projects.
